SPIN / Adventures in Typography 2 [Unit 36]
Design: Spin

Edition of 1000

Spin/Adventures in Typography 2 is serious and silly in equal measure (occasionally at the same time). The Spin team of Tony Brook, Claudia Klat and Jonathan Nielsen have embarked on a journey into typography’s darkest recesses.

Searching for the new and the surprising, they have made a series of experiments, by computer and by hand, that stretch the boundaries of typographic expression almost to breaking point.

Chapters in this 52pp journal include Alien: Future/Font: Lettuce/Letters; Helvetica Alt: Dr Frankenstein’s Helvetica; Helvetica est mort; and Tape Face. You have been warned.

‘One can never overstate the importance of accessories. They are what turns a dress into something else. I like dresses to be sober and accessories to be wild’, Yves Saint Laurent, 1977.

Yves Saint Laurent Accessories is the first book to date to shed light on the breathtaking accessories created by one of the most influential fashion designers of all time. From his first collection in 1962 to his acclaimed final presentation in 2002, Yves Saint Laurent created exquisite jewellery, hats, shoes, and handbags to complement and enhance each of his couture creations. Beautifully designed, in a small format evocative of a jewellery box, the book offers an unprecedented glimpse into the highly confidential archives of The Yves Saint Laurent Foundation in Paris, which is home to over 20,000 remarkable accessories. The book features specially commissioned photography of the accessories alongside a treasure trove of rare materials including preparatory sketches, intimate portraits of Saint Laurent at work, behind-the-scenes snapshots of models, catwalk photographs, and advertising campaigns. Yves Saint Laurent Accessories introduces readers to a prominent yet rarely seen side of Saint Laurent’s art, leading them backstage and through the history of a house that helped to shape the course of fashion.

George Condo Bio

George Condo’s work is populated by a cast of characters whose bulging eyes, bulbous cheeks, proliferating limbs, and hideous over – and under-bites set them apart as a singular species. Drawing on vastly diverse painting practices—like Pablo Picasso, Diego Velázquez, Henri Matisse, and Cy Twombly—Condo absorbs a vast range of art-historical sources, yet, at the same, creates a pictorial language characteristically his own, one that investigates the macabre, the carnivalesque, and the abject. He calls his surrealistic style “psychological cubism”, exploiting “our own imperfections—the private, off-moments or unseen aspects of humanity—that often give way to some of painting’s most beautiful moments.” Even Condo’s most abstract works, like Internal Space (2005) with its impenetrable geometric scaffolding of forms radiating from the painting’s center, explore the furthest extremes of the human psyche.

Koor Typeface

Koor is a contemporary serif typeface with sharp cuts and triangular features, the result; a crisp personality across 18 dynamic styles with three optical sizes. The sizes Thin, Normal and Thick. each have six weights from Light to Super.

All three styles are designed to cover a wide range of application such as editorial, corporate, web interaction and logotype design. The “Thick Style” with a low contrast stroke and even cooler is suited for body text or heavy headlines. While the “Thin style” with its hairline like stroke and slightly more rounded features has the perfect qualities for large scale display uses. A solid workhorse is the “Normal Style” with it’s balanced contrast similar to classical serif typeface.

Michael Fliri: Replace Me as the Substitute

Texts by Koen Leemans, Nicola Setari and Michele Horrigan

In his work Michael Fliri investigates concepts such as metamorphosis, mutation, disguise and transformation. That transition can be seen as a meeting between different worlds in which diametrically opposed notions and ideas appear to communicate effortlessly with one another: conscious/unconscious, light/dark, nature/culture, content/emptiness, appearing/disappearing. Body, landscape, a thought-out theme and imaginative metaphors together form a compelling whole. Central to his work seems to be the question of what it is that determines who and what we are. What is our identity? How do we form our image of ourselves? Are we really who we think we are? In Michael Fliri’s solo presentation Replace Me As The Substitute at De Garage, all facets of his work come together in a comprehensive show. Without wanting to expand to the proportions of a retrospective, the focus lies on a balanced and subtle dialogue, between works that at first sight perhaps look very different, but that more than ever allows the exceptional coherence in his work to come to the fore. The eponymous publication moreover offers an extended and enduring overview and underscores the international significance and the relevance of his artistic practice.

ISBN 13: 978-3-95730-000-3

Excitingly determined…

For many years social critics have been trying to make young people aware of the fact that tattoos will last for a lifetime and that the insights of an 18-year-old might differ to the way they perceive things when they are 40. Tattoo Super Models by Christian Saint counters that well made tattoos on beautiful women are simply gorgeous. It is a plea for the courage to beautify oneself permanently, to do this without any fear of regret it once you’re old – because the bravado to really live in the moment is extremely sexy.

Christian Saint is a professional advertising, celebrity and fine art photographer, residing in (Williamsburg) Brooklyn, New York. With over 20 years experience in the commercial world and tired of the industry’s narrow view of beauty, he focused his sites on the tattoo community. Using his knowledge from commercial fashion and beauty, he helps bring “alternative” to the main-stream. With his unique, sophisticated style he has successfully dragged tattoo photography out of hiding, while consistently exciting a large inter-national audience.

Tattoo Super Models features inked beauties with perfect shapes, wearing almost nothing but seductive body art. Using light masterly to caress a woman’s skin, Christian Saint is highlighting the sexiness of individual body art with a finesse that everybody can fall in love with. Elegant, capriciously and truly sexy.

Winter 2017/18 “Berlin Kidz”

How do you write in an age of anger? By using text as a weapon to deface the establishment.

This is lesson number one of this issue’s dossier BERLIN KIDZ, which follows the anonymous group of graffiti writers, videographers, and train-surfers to the highest points in the German capital. Meanwhile in New Jersey, FRANK OCEAN lives out his exile on Main Street and receives a fresh glow from PETRA COLLINS and ALEX NEEDHAM. In two 032c archeological expeditions, MARIO TESTINO explores the shores of Pompeii, while KATERINA JEBB visits BALTHUS’s Grand Chalet for an editorial posthumously narrated by a conversation between the late painter and DAVID BOWIE. We delve into the psyche (and country home) of artist JORDAN WOLFSON and escape a Parisian hospital with JACKIE NICKERSON. Writer PANKAJ MISHRA explains why embarking on modernity was such a risky project and how we ended up in an “Age of Anger.” In a chilling personal essay, CEO MATHIAS DÖPFNER recounts his travels to the Nazi Death Camps in Poland. DANIEL RICHTER and LUDWIG LUGMEIER perform a séance on Jewish exile, Al Capone bodyguard, and lost modernist JACK BILBO, while PIERRE-ANGE CARLOTTI imagines the death metal cowboys of Botswana in Berlin. We speak with ABRA, BJARKE INGELS, TACO, and JULIANA HUXTABLE, and last but not least, KRIS VAN ASSCHE, who tells us what it means to be an Homme on the occasion of his ten year anniversary as artistic director of Dior.

Also included with the issue are sticker pages featuring designs by AMBUSH, Geoff McFetridge, J.W. Anderson, SSS World Corp, Wes Lang, and Virgil Abloh c/o OFF-WHITE.

Black Balloons II (Big Scale)
Tadao Cern

“Every single day I spend at my studio and my creative process resembles playing. Everything I create comes out of curiosity. The same happened with a project ‘Black Balloons’.

For an extensive amount of time I had an idea to connect two balloons. I found a free minute between the other currently run projects, bought two balloons, and got overwhelmed by the result.

It was so unpretentious and so magical at the same time! That opposition created by two very simple and playful objects once again brought a unique childlike sense of discovery.

This experience uncovers a lot and the more one looks at it, the more it becomes true: “simplicity is a genius”

For the first test I used two regular latex balloons and two different gasses: helium and sulfur hexafluoride – the light and the heavy ones. Later on, I worked out how to make the balloons float in the middle of a glass tank without connecting them to anything… Compositions started to grow more complex and bigger when eventually I was working with 3-meter big custom made balloons… Results can be found below.”

When asked by the Nike Running team to help them create a beautifully-crafted publication that showcased their category values along with great photography, we jumped at the opportunity. The oversized, offset-printed book featured two fluorescent spot colors, and was wrapped in a large screenprinted poster and reflective mylar jacket, inspired by the mylar blankets worn by marathon runners post-race.

M+B Photo is pleased to announce Silver. Skate. Seventies., an exhibition of black and white photographs by Hugh Holland. The opening of this show will coincide with the grand opening of M+B Photo’s new exhibition space in Hollywood. In Silver. Skate. Seventies., the public will get its first glimpse at the photographer’s never-before-exhibited archive of black and white images, including some of his earliest photographs documenting the rise of the California skateboard revolution in the 70s. The exhibition runs from December 2, 2017 to January 31, 2018, with an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, December 2 from 6 to 8 pm at the new M+B Photo exhibition space in Hollywood.

On a late afternoon in 1975, a young photographer named Hugh Holland drove up Laurel Canyon Boulevard in Los Angeles and encountered skateboarders carving up the drainage ditches along the side of the canyon. Southern California was experiencing a major drought. Emptied suburban swimming pools became evaporated playgrounds for kids with wheels—kick-starting an explosive skateboarding scene. “It spread like wildfire all over Southern California,” says photographer Hugh Holland. “I know it happened in other parts of the world too, but California felt like the center of it all.” Immediately transfixed by their grace and athleticism, he knew he had found an amazing subject. Although not a skateboarder himself, for the next three years Holland never tired of documenting skateboarders surfing the streets of Los Angeles, parts of the San Fernando Valley, Venice Beach and as far away as San Francisco and Baja California, Mexico.

Hugh Holland: Silver. Skate. Seventies., adds a more raw, spontaneous understanding to Holland’s well-known color photographs of the 1970’s skating scene. Though now he is most closely associated with his later work in color, the artist began his photographic documentation of the skateboard revolution shooting in black and white. Holland shot these negatives while experimenting with new ideas and often for his own enjoyment. These early black and white images were in many ways the genesis for his later color works—providing us with a rare glimpse behind the creative curtain.

This high-quality pictorial features different photographers and their unpretentious, casual approach to e:r:o:t:i:c photography. The superficially unarranged, spontaneous or happenstance pictures convey the new subtle form of e:r:o:t:i:c in the ages of Facebook and Instagram. One could almost say their influences were based on the dreaminess of images in the style of David Hamilton, to the directness of a Calvin Klein campaign, all the way to the bodysuit photography of American Apparel catalogs. Subtle h:o:t e:r:o:t:i:c mental cinema at its best- despite today’s (social media) masked requirements.

The fascinating inside story behind the cult French fashion label A.P.C.

A.P.C. (Atelier de Production et de Création) was created as a reaction to the excesses of the 1980s, and the minimalist designs of founder Jean Touitou now have a cult following. This compelling book, published on the occasion of A.P.C.’s 30th anniversary, carries the same minimal aesthetic – yet it’s packed with never-before-seen illustrations and ephemera. Part retrospective of the brand and part personal scrapbook and visual diary, the book includes invitations, postcards, ad campaigns, images of their stores, and collaborations with other designers.

Beautiful New Worlds
Virtual realities in contemporary art
November 11, 2017 — April 8, 2018

Zeppelin Museum
Seestraße 22
88045 Friedrichshafen
Germany

The popularization of virtual reality has created a visual revolution that radically changes both our perception of images and our relationship to reality. Virtual spaces create illusionary worlds that can be directly experienced. Viewers immerse themselves in impressions as far away as possible from the outside world, thereby becoming physically involved through interactive elements that resemble their body. Through virtual reality, the audience becomes part of an image that fills their entire field of vision.

Technologies suitable for mass consumption, such as VR glasses, 3D cardboards, 3D projectors and televisions, are increasingly found in everyday life. The various fields of application for these technologies, including 3D-supported operation monitoring, video games, trauma coping and the digitization of lost cultural treasures all illustrate how virtual spatial images already influence different areas of our world and will continue to shape our future.

The exhibition Beautiful New Worlds addresses these recent developments in image technology and explores the resulting entanglement of virtual and physical spaces. A particular focus is placed on the socio-political potential of virtual technologies. In the crosshairs between illusion and critical distance, different artistic positions examine the possibilities presented in the fields of forensics, the porn industry, and modern warfare; after all, control over virtual space is always interlinked with control over physical space. Virtuality and reality are tightly intertwined with one another.

The escape into illusionary worlds is by no means a new phenomenon. Rather, it is grounded in long traditions. Panoramas, dioramas and stereoscopes illustrate the centuries-old history of mankind’s interest in immersive media. The starting point of the exhibition are stereoscopic photographs, which accompany the history of the Zeppelin from 1900 to the 1930s.

In an exhibition space spanning over 1000 square meters, 13 internationally renowned artists will address the relationship between virtual and physical spaces. In this way, the exhibition reflects different varieties of virtuality. Together with the Berlin-based architecture firm Kooperative für Darstellungspolitik, an exhibition course was created in order to make the complex relationship between virtual and physical spaces bodily perceptible for the audience. The range of virtual reality is explored through simulations in which the physical environment is artificially reproduced, through 3D videos, and through virtual reality spaces that create an all-encompassing illusionary space.

Working closely together with immersive visual media, the artists have collaborated with programmers to further develop the existing technology and revitalize the interdisciplinary interface between contemporary art and technological innovation.

Excedentes (in spanish means surpluses) is a collaborative platform that was born in 2015 with the aim of promoting a sustainable industry by recovering, transforming and giving new use to industrial waste; Extending their useful life and returning them to the market in the form of new products.

The main challenge of this redesign has been generate a more functional and durable image over time, which also promotes the Excedentes platform philosophy: develop a new product from industrial waste.

What is the surplus of the Excedentes Platform? This point was the beging of the graphical analysis of the last identity, coming to the conclusion that the logo was directly related to the first contest: a bag of biodegradable polyethylene. Once the surplus (in this case, graphic surplus) of the last identity was found, it was transformed into a new use. To this end, a series of previously defined parameters were applied on the previous logo based on the winning project of the first contest. An identity based on the philosophy of the Platform: give a new use to surplus materials.
